Varnier-Fanniere Cuvee Saint Denis Blanc de Blancs

SKU #100232 90 points Vinous

 The NV Brut Cuvée St-Denis Grand Cru is a powerful, creamy wine. The 8 grams of dosage softens some of the natural Avize structure and gives the St-Denis quite a bit of immediacy, not to mention pure appeal. Hints of smoke, ash, chalk and white pepper add multiple shades of nuances throughout. This is a very pretty and vivid wine that will also drink well upon release. Disgorged: April 2016. Dosage is 8 grams per liter. (AG)  (12/2017)

K&L Notes

This wine is 100% chardonnay from the grand cru commune of Avize. It has a fantastic texture, striking a balance between richness and freshness. Wine as good as this from a big name producer would easily sell for twice the price. An amazing Champagne, all from estate vineyards! (K&L - Gary Westby)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
